“I first met Michele a year ago, after over 10 years of struggling with my weight and an unhealthy relationship with food which I was unable to help myself out of. Michele guided me in seeing the food I eat as nutrition while not restricting myself to the point that I would eventually fail and helped keep me accountable for the choices I made. For the first time in my life I was able to lose weight in a sustainable, healthy way without a fad diet and still continue to do so. Along with her positive approach to physical activity and her engaging personality you can’t help but want to work out with her and get the most out of yourself in the process.

I can’t thank Michele enough for what she has helped me accomplish in the past year and for what I’m positive will take place in the future. I sincerely believe she has facilitated long lasting changes in myself that I would not have been able to do on my own.”
